    Might be tempted by this. I tried the Bastion demo on the 360 and enjoyed it, but found the text unreadable on my SD TV set.

      It really is a fantastic game. Not to spoil anything but there is a moment in the game where I just stopped to listen to the music (the first song with lyrics, gives me chills). The soundtrack is uniformly fantastic, this coming from a guy who generally doesn’t like game music.

      This is the only game I wish I could forget everything so I could experience it again for the first time. It’s that great.

    I have it on Steam, and I wish I would get credit (somehow) for buying it on one platform when it comes out on another. This applies to all the other cross-platform games out there, as well.

    Just picked this up… ’cause why not, I guess. Definitely a different experience using the controls (10 minutes in). Will have to see how well it goes when I get into some more difficult areas. The flavor of the game is entirely intact, I’m happy to say.

    Five bucks? Don’t mind if I do.
